linux.conf.au: Taking FOSS to the masses

Filed under
OSS

Jacinta Richardson is one woman who admits to definitely being a geek. But that hasn't got in the way of her being the organiser of the only non-geek event of the 2008 Australian national Linux conference - Open Day.

Asked how she came to be involved, she says that chief organiser Donna Benjamin "asked me really nicely." Jacinta has been involved in other conferences, notably the Open Source Developers' Conference which is held in Queensland each year. She helped organise it for the first three years of its existence.

A Perl trainer and consultant, Jacinta is one-half of the company Perl Training Australia. Born in Alice Springs, she moved to Bendigo when she was 10 and later to Melbourne.

Her first exposure to the Linux conference was in Sydney in 2007.
